TVC effects on flow separation on slender cylinders

TVC effects on flow separation on slender cylinders Abstract Occurrence of flow separation within the boundary-layer is primarily attributed to the growth of adverse pres-sure gradient within the boundary-layer. Such a separating boundary-layer can, however, be made to stay attached to the bounding surface due to various remedies where the surface transverse curvature (TVC) is one of them while the body contour is another. Assistive role of the surface transverse curvature is utilized in delaying the boundary-layer separation in a retarded flow past the slender bodies by assuming different body configurations. Axially-symmetric bodies of revolution of different shapes having a varying cross section in x, following the power-law form, have been considered in this study. It is shown that the point of separation is strongly dependent upon the surface curvature parameter k and the body-shape index n, which in fact control the flow separation. This fact ensures that an increase in the surface curvature parameter k and the body-shape index n leads to an increase in the wall shear stress which consequently delays the flow separation.

Abstract

Abstract Occurrence of flow separation within the boundary-layer is primarily attributed to the growth of adverse pres-sure gradient within the boundary-layer. Such a separating boundary-layer can, however, be made to stay attached to the bounding surface due to various remedies where the surface transverse curvature (TVC) is one of them while the body contour is another. Assistive role of the surface transverse curvature is utilized in delaying the boundary-layer separation in a retarded flow past the slender bodies by assuming different body configurations. Axially-symmetric bodies of revolution of different shapes having a varying cross section in x, following the power-law form, have been considered in this study. It is shown that the point of separation is strongly dependent upon the surface curvature parameter k and the body-shape index n, which in fact control the flow separation. This fact ensures that an increase in the surface curvature parameter k and the body-shape index n leads to an increase in the wall shear stress which consequently delays the flow separation. Significant delay in flow separation is observed on cylinders having sufficiently large transverse curvature. Percent increase in the separation length corresponding to various values of the curvature parameter and the body-shape index has been calculated and reported in the form of Tables.
